Very excited to announce that Akin Gump, a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers globally, has adopted FileTrail GPS to support its information governance program.
In recent years, a growing number of law firms have been moving to “paperless” or paper-light systems, with electronic records regarded as the “official” record of the organization. Certainly, law firms have come a long way in reducing their usage of paper and helping to save trees — striking a positive note this Arbor Day.
FileTrail has announced the launch of a new series of educational events in partnership with ILTA, the International Legal Technology Association.
Many law firms we work with report that the role of the records manager has changed in recent years. A growing number of firms view Records Management as a cornerstone of Information Governance — especially as clients are scrutinizing firm retention policies and as the industry as a whole is moving to embrace electronic documents and records.
Hogan Lovells, the 8th largest firm in the US and the 12th largest firm in the world by revenue*, is the latest firm to upgrade its legacy RM systems to FileTrail and advanced its information governance efforts with FileTrail GPS.
We’re delighted to announce that Davis Wright Tremaine, an Am Law 100 firm with more than 550 lawyers, has selected the FileTrail Governance Policy Suite (GPS) for information governance.
Leading law firms are rethinking information governance — taking a more holistic approach to data management, embracing automation, and recognizing the critical importance of records management. According to the IG Initiative Annual Report, 94% of law firms identify records management as a key part of IG, ranking it higher than e-discovery (86%), risk management (77%) and compliance (88%).
